ONLINE EVENT – In this virtual ‘fireside chat’ co-hosted by the Atlantic Council
and SACC-USA, Barry Pavel
addresses the Scowcroft Center’s
efforts to both comprehend the geopolitics of COVID-19 and shape the US and allied response.
The coronavirus pandemic represents a geopolitical inflection point that will continue to shape international and domestic phenomena for decades. The United States, alongside allies and partners like Sweden, has only just begun to comprehend its implications for the health, economic vitality, and security of the current world order.
Accordingly, the Atlantic Council
l and its Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security
have been at the forefront of global efforts to map the potential geopolitical trajectories of this pandemic.
In previous weeks, the Scowcroft Center
launched a groundbreaking Atlantic Council Strategy Paper on three scenarios for a post-COVID-19 world order, while hosting numerous European officials and other prominent voices including Swedish Ambassador Karin Olofsdotter
and bestselling author Max Brooks
for virtual discussions on lessons learned and policy responses. Minimizing the risks and maximizing the historic moment will require an innovative and holistic approach to international security and foreign affairs.
We thoroughly recommend that you join the Atlantic Council
and SACC-USA for a virtual ‘fireside chat’ with Barry Pavel
, Senior Vice President of the Atlantic Council and Director of the Atlantic Council’s Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security
, on “The Geopolitical Implications of COVID-19.” The event
will take place on Friday, May 15, 2020 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. EDT, and will be held online through Zoom video-conference technology. To receive the Zoom link, please register by clicking the REGISTER HERE
